We popped in there for drinks and a snack before an appointment. Ordered pork dumplings. They were as good as any gyoza we've had anywhere. The bottoms were nicely browned. The filling was tasty and the rest of the wrapper was nicely steamed. Wine selection was good and the beer was tasty. We returned after our appointment for more pork dumplings, spring rolls and wine. All good and the staff were friendly and accommodating.

I apologize for your experience with us on this occasion. We will be organizing a staff meeting to address this.
While this is indeed a non smoking area, unfortunately some people are still confused with the recent regulations put in place.

Kind regards,
The George management team.

Visited this bar when i was in Wellington, stumbled across it at around 3am when i was in urgent need. The owner who is a stand up guy went above and beyond and helped me to ensure that my night ended well when it was looking bleak. i then visited the next night to thank the lads, ended up having some food in there. Have to admit it was the best curry I have had in a long time. Superb. And i was hungover to shiiit too. Also offered us some free drinks, but we were too on our backsides.

Top place, top bloke, great banter, great food.

If you see this, nice one mate.

Spent 5 days in Wellington & popped into this bar for a drink on the first day. Got such friendly, great service by staff who obviously enjoy their positions that we returned on several occasions across our stay. Bar manager was an awesome guy who enjoyed a chat with you & made you feel very very welcome. Will definately visit again when in Wellington.

The George is about as central Welly as it gets. A good pub. Nice name with some excellent graffiti outside too. Would have loved to play chess in a tournament there, the St. George defence, of course. Hear there's a hotel there too. Have fun and don't forget to swing by Our Lady of the Angels if so inclined.

Cheerio!
